off the cliff. >> so you want the sequestration cuts to go ahead, even on defense. i'm just getting breaking news that the president -- >> well, just remember, on defense, we are now spending substantially more, inflation adjusted, than at the height of the vietnam war, when we were waging the cold war and we had 500,000 troops in the field. >> well, cnn has just confirmed, congressman, that the white house, the president will meet with the congressional leadership, both parties tomorrow at the white house. what do you think they need to put on the table and get done tomorrow? what do you want to hear them say? >> john, when did we stop teaching civics in our schools? the president is not supposed to be part of the deliberative process. he heads an entirely separate branch of government with an altogether different purpose. i think we need to go back to the way the government was designed to operate, and that is the deliberative function, in the legislative branch, both the house and the senate, acting independently. and then resolving their differences through conference. that proc
voted pass the tax cut and automatic cut to defense and domestic program starting in the new year. so they shifted the focus for the need for majority leader harry reid and the senate democrats to do something. >> the way the senate is fon functionm right now, not even bringing the bills upper committee is frustrating to those of us in the house that are doing the work that has to be done. if senate wants to resolution, the senate has to actually pass something on this. we have done our work. senate has to respond. >> challenge is determining what passed the republican-led house and democrat-controlled senate. fiscal conservatives say a smaller stop gap measure to avoid the cliff won't work. >> if we, in fact, do not use this period of time before right now, deal with the bigger issue and entitlements, if we just continue to kick the can down the road. the market will respond in a more permanent and negative way to our inaction. >> one thing leading republicans and democrats seem to agree on is time is running short. veteran senate democrat says there is a very small window to get som
on his agenda. one being the next secretary of defense. did you expect to see chuck hagel of all people so embattled from both sides? >> well, yes, sort of. yourn, you know that john mccain hates the guy. you know, he -- and he didn't create a lot of friends toward the end of his time and throughout most of his time as a senator. because he didn't really tow the party line on policy. he broke with republicans on the iraq war. and so he oftentimes would give democrats a way of saying what they were doing was bipartisan and then had the sheen of the veblt of a guy like hagel so it's this guy that's been a thorn in their side the whole time. now here he is he might be elevated to secretary of defense. and you could see that's going to bother the same types of people that seem to be bothered by every other person that's floated by obama. and that's mccain and graham and those fellas. >> but we've heard about this mccain not liking or hating chuck hagel. what's that about? what's their history? from one maverick to another. >> exactly. there's only so much room in the senate for mavericks. y
don't need a magazine with 100 rounds in it, that's notself defense, that's not hunting. and how we can back up -- yes, people have a right to protect their family, but you don't need all of this to protect your family. he did the opposite. he said let's put armed guards in the school, let's arm teachers. let's remember now, we have seen this year education budgets cut. we don't have money to give teachers raises. we had a teachers strike in chicago. we don't have money to do things that teachers need, but we'll find money to arm them, to train them, to buy them guns, ammunition. what are we saying? so we can arm teachers, but we can't give teachers money to give them the ability to be better educators? to me that's the wrong message to send. >> two sides are looking for meaningful contributions. the fact there was a gun buy-back program, the day after christmas, 1500 rifles and handguns were taken back by police in exchange for groceries and a cash back program there in los angeles. hugely successful. meanwhile, arizona's attorney general is proposes a voluntary programs where scho
prepared a detailed plan for defense of saudi oil fields against the iraqis. general colin powell released this statement in part, with the passing of general norman schwarzkopf, america has lost a great patriot and soldier. he has served his country with distinguished patriot him for 35 years. general schwarzkopf could have died in tampa. he was 78 years old. harris: general schwarzkopf could have credited again with leading the u.s. to victory in the first gulf war. stay close. we'll be right back. harris: right now some crime headlines we're keeping an eye on. three police officers wounded in a shooting at a new jersey police station. it happened in gloucester. we're told the man who was in custody there was shot and killed and there is no danger now to the wider public. >>> the trial for craig's list murder suspect richard beasley is being delayed. it was supposed to start next week but has been put off until february so his newly hired attorneys can be put up to speed. he posted help wanted ads on craig's list and robbing and killing people when they responded. >>> a 17-month-old girl
matter that rises immediately to the floor is who is going to be the secretary of defense. the person whose name has been floated this week is chuck hagel. republicans are trying to stop his potential nomination too, even though chuck hagel himself is a former republican senator. they think he is not right wing enough. chuck hagel does not just have critics on the right, though. on the left there is rumbling that democratic presidents should stop putting republicans in the secretary of defense job like bill clinton did with bill cohen and president obama already did once with bob gates. calling it the bizarre tradition of sorts where democratic presidents suddenly act like republicans are right, that only they, republicans, can run our national security affairs. so there is general criticism from the left that democrats should stop bolstering the myth that republicans are stronger on defense because they're republicans, and therefore, only republicans should run defense even when a democrat is president. but there is also this one very specific criticism of chuck hagel individually. i
quickly. >> let's talk about that word, sequestration and there's a lot of concern about the defense cuts and the defense department, how to deal with it. leon panetta toning down the remarks saying that they would not necessarily require immediate action and could eventually mean furloughs down the road and looking at january and the cuts divided by ten years and 12 months, talking 50 billion, 60 billion in january. >> right. it's 110 billion for the year of 2013 in automatic spending cuts divided equally between defense and nondefense. on the nonentitlement or discretionary side of budget. if you look at that month by month and the point of panetta and many of the agencies can sort of fudge things for a few months, in most cases i don't think we'll see much impact of automatic spending cuts quickly. by the way, this has been somewhat underappreciated. in this small bore compromise that the president and many of the earlier interviewers talking about today. the one the president is pushing for, the sequester is pushed down the road. suspended. the automatic pay cuts as part of that deal
a lot of that money will apparently come from it defense you your opinion? >> hopefully one thing they can iron out is replace the defense sequestration cuts with other limitations in spending in other areas. would be a good thing. one of the points we do need to make is we he blue through the $2.1 trillion worth of debt ceiling increase from last august in 17 months. that is an astonishing fact. once we get this tax issue behind us and hopefully in the next couple of days, then we need to start asking the president what s your plan, senator harry reid are you going pass a budget. i really do believe that the president and the democrats really have no intention and as a result have no plan to limit the rate of growth in government and no plan to save social security and medicare and we need to start putting political pressure on them to show the american people a plan. the house passed two budgets since i have been here. they both include some proposal to save medicare. the democrats have not done that and this is really where we start turning the messaging on them and start deman
to replace secretary of defense leon panetta. joining me now to look at all this: james mann, long-time journalist and author of "the obamians: the struggle inside the white house to redefine american power"; and david ignatius, foreign affairs columnist for the "washington post." david, as we heard the president say, a well-known man around washington and foreign policy circles. what strengths does john kerry bring? >> well, the first is the one the president mentioned. he has stature, he's well-known. he's being doing foreign policy from the senate for almost three decades. he's a person well-known to leaders around the world. the second thing that people don't know as much about is that he served as an emissary for president obama in some very delicate situations. the president sent him to afghanistan to try to make a better relationship with president karzai there. kerry is widely believed to have been a success in that. he was sent to pakistan for similar mission to deal with president zardari. it's less well-known that he conveyed a message, written message to hamas to try to
, for example, if we didn't do this and if we hadn't put defense cuts also on the table and if everything was on discretionary, for example, i don't think we would have gotten anywhere. i don't think the republicans would have even come to the table and would have even ever considered taxes, but i think the reason why they are is because of the defense cuts. it's not that the republicans are opposed to spending. they have no problem spending. it just depends on what we're talking about. if it's spending for defense, they have no problem with that. >> congresswoman, thanks for joining me today. happy holidays to you and to yours. >> thank you. merry christmas to you as well, and congratulations again. >> thank you so much. i appreciate that. >>> so a not so merry christmas for senator mike. a republican from idaho arrested for dui early this morning, and it is the day before christmas. we all know that. it seems more like black friday in certain malls. we're going to tell you about those deals across the country. [ male announcer ] you've reached the age where you don't back down from a ch
's just a democratic agenda. cuts to defense and higher taxes, what's not to love if you are a democrat? that's why they have been so slow to move. that's why the president is becoming concerned about the economy and ultimately his legacy. even though he can blame republicans in the short-term in the long term when they look back to this period this is going to attach to the president. is he feeling now an obligation to finally lead on this issue. and hopefully he will bring some democrats in the house and the senate along but it's going to have to be something that republicans can support. republicans are not going to a . and obviously so we're going to be very interested in the particulars of this as they begin to emerge. i'm just glad finally that the president is here. but to your point, it is true a lot of democrats get what they want. they get higher taxes automatically on january 1st. and they get steep cuts in the defense budget. but i will tell you what, there are an awful lot of people that would be hurt by that particularly small businesses and job creators and that's why it
rumors former senator chuck hagel is being considered for secretary of defense, we will look at why the debate over his potential nomination could be a, could be rivaled one of the other ambassadors, susan rice. >>> as people struggle to deal with wicked weather, those with heart issues could be facing serious consequences of the we've got tips on how to protect yourself. jamie: i've been waiting all morning for this one because there is growing outrage after a newspaper in upstate new york publish also the names and addresses of every handgun permit holder, not necessarily owners of guns, in their area. it is "the journal news". they first published a map on its website on saturday and names were all obtained legally by the paper under the freedom of information act. the map doesn't indicate whether the residents actually owned handguns as i mentioned. only they're legally able to do so. and the information doesn't pertain to rifles or shotguns which we've heard so much about in the tragic stories over the last couple weeks. those of course can be bought without a permit. we want t
proliferation about half the area, wrong and dealing with russia on arms control and missile defense, wrong on china. i could go on, but i think that -- lou: we are about to run out of countries. >> the president got what he wanted. it will be more of the same. lou: to you agree? >> i think it is a pretty good choice. he won the election. he gets to choose. confirmed pretty readily? represents a sort of mainstream of american foreign policy, a little bit less for me, but not as far left as the first joist. lou: interesting, john mccain and others came out with really unreserved support for senator kerry. let's turn, if we may, to the failure in benghazi. and this report looks to me, i no there are varying views on this. and other whitewash, it seems. >> and the misses the point. we know what happened before and during periods grew up some allies, cover-ups. to me with the important thing is, what happened afterwards, which is nothing. then never hunted down, retaliated, responded. look at what happened to the original september 11th. 1998, attacks on u.s. embassies in east frica and in 2000
what the argument is. >>> plus the chuck hagel for secretary of defense bubble has been popped. by floating other names. did obama's miss like bork even getting nominated? i don't like this process. >>> and new reports the tea party process was imploding, imploding well before election day. including an attempt with dick armey getting aimed. >>> plus we'll have the top viral videos of 2012 including this one. >> we're all on our own if romney has his way. and he's against safety nets. if you fall, tough luck. so i strongly suggest that you wake the [ bleep ] up. >> actually, that's samuel l. jackson, he's a nice fella personally. this is "hardball," the place for politics. he really is a nice guy. >>> former president george h.w. bush took a turn for the over and he's against safety nets. if you fall, tough luck. so i strongly suggest that you wake the [ bleep ] up. >> actually, that's samuel l. jackson, he's a nice fella personally. this is "hardball," the place for politics. he really is a nice guy. >>> former president george h.w. bush took a turn for the worse over christma
it comes to a number of defense cuts when it hits in their districts a number of them, if it hits companies in their districts well you have to stop defense cuts using an economic argument. when you talk about the $94 billion, well, yes there are economic effects that will be felt, the $94 billion in cuts down as sequester, you have to put that in perspective the sandy supplemental bill started out $60 billion. one storm could wipe out all the savings or. adam: that sandy supplemental bill is 60 billion, 45 billion according to taxpayers for common sense is stimulus spending that doesn't involve the hurricane. dan, i will come back to you after we listen to sound bite from harry reid, senate majority leader commenting on the negotiations today. here is what he said. >> okay. we had a long meeting in the white house. it was very constructive. we hope that it will be bear fruit but that is what we hope ad lot. i think that the next 2 hours will be very instructive what we're able to accomplish. >> was there progress? discussion of a concrete proposal? >> we talked about a lot of things. there
on everybody and extra cuts on defense. you know he is a professor. he is a lecturer. i think he is accustomed to telling people what he wants them to know and then eliciting a certain response. in the house we have had bipartisan support to extend taxes, deal with a sequester, the things on harry reid's desk. we would like to see action from the president and the senate. >> congressman blackburn thank you very much. great to see you. we hope you have a very merry christmas. >> thank you. >>> this just into our newsroom. new video of an airstrike in syria. a report that dozens have been killed and many more injured in the attack by the government on a bakery in the town of halfaya. that town was recently taken over by rebels. >>> during the budget meeting, they say the u.s. needs to reexamine how the military plays a role in protecting our diplomats. at a time when our country is looming near fiscal cliff and see -- see questions station is around the bend how do you protect? he is a member of the armed services committee from california. congressman, thank you very much for joining us. >> goo

criminal defense attorney and law professor who joins us from las vegas. hello, happy holidays to both of you. >> same to you, marty. all the best. >> you, too. >> let's talk first jerry sandusky. a few things to bring up here. as we all remember, he was the penn state assistant football coach convicted in june on 45 counts of child sex abuse. he's now serving 30 to 60 years in prison. jerry sandusky says that he has now focused or he is focused on his appeal. he's got a hearing that i believe is set for january 10th on his pretrial motions. guys, there's a newspaper in northeastern pennsylvania that says sandusky sent a handwritten note saying he is trying to endure, and there was a lot more to it than that, but i'll leave it at that, and learn from his circumstances but had this to say about his trial -- nobody who covered the case or reported it had the time or took the time study the allegations, the accusere accuserers, the inconsistent, and the method. justice and fairness were not a focus. avery, i'll begin with you. do you think he might have a point that this was such a heinou

of the defense cuts spending in the sequestered items, but until now, no discussion at all about what happens to the other things other than income tax rates, and that's deflationary. good point. allen harry, seems to me, talk oil, allen, fluxuating, and we had a report that gasoline supplies with a nine month high on weaker demand. oil, is this the range to be stuck in for awhile, do you think? >> no. i think right now, and anything above $90, it's a buy, and as buy nd long in that level. i think we might see 92.50 to 94. there's going to be a parcel package, a sideways range, but not in the 91 range long. we'll break from there and go to 92.5 to 94. ashley: brent, at 110, the benchmark grade if you'd like for more than half the world's crude. do you expect brent to be remain above 100 in the coming year? >> short term, bullish on crude oil. longer term, there's an oversupply now, so longer term, bearish. we are below the hundred dollars in brent, but right now, anything above 110, it's a buy. ashley: long wti and short on brent? >> no, long both. ashley: long both. interesting. >> yeah, lo
their mortgage interest deduction, whatever that will look like. but what about spending cuts? is it defense cuts? is it health care cuts? where are those cuts going to come pro? >> we've already made some cuts in defense. obviously with sequestration there is a lot more. i think sequestration is not the way to go. we could do a better job prioritizing. they will come out of a lot of areas. agriculture, we put together a farm bill that cuts 23 to 35 billion. you put that in the mix. again we have to go through all aspects of government to figure out where we can save and at the same time we've got to reform entitlement programs to make sure they're is vent for the long term the those ideas have been put forward. we have to come together on a package and do it. adam: this is simple yes or no, senator before i let you go. are you here monday night talking to us about how we go over the cliff or do we get a resolution, yes or no? >> yes, i think there is chance we will be. the house is coming back. that's a good sign. let's get everybody here. let's get after it. adam: senator john hoeven, one of th
. that will not be enough. what the underlying bill does to eliminate the defense sequester cuts president obama has called dangerous, it says, the only people who should get food stamps are people who qualify for food stamps. that is right. the underlying bill says the only folks who should get food stamps are those who qualify. it turns out, like every federal program, there is fraud. some folks are receiving taxpayer-sponsored benefits today who have not earned them, who do not find themselves entitled to them by virtue of their circumstances. because this bill aims to eliminate the fraud, folks come to the floor and say, why are republicans throwing hungry people out during christmas. it is outrageous. we cannot have a conversation about serious things in a serious time. the outrageous pointed to last night, what happened last night is exactly what i would hope would happen in a conversation like this. almost to a person, every democratic member in that rules committee said, all we have in front of us is a tax bill. all we have in front of us is a tax bill and every one in america knows the problem is

spending categories, national defense, many of what we call the domestic discretionary programs would also be hit. this is a big fiscal wallop to the economy and a lot of economists believe it could cause a double-dip recession. patti ann: on the other hand we are hearing from lawmakers, some at lease on both sides that they would quickly, both houses, the house and senate pass legislation to rollback those tax hikes on at least some americans at the lower end, and that maybe they would end up keeping them for the higher end because once they are in much harder to remove those tax hikes. do you believe that that would happen? patti ann: yeah, look, i think a lot of this is high theater, this is just drama i think it's going to play out probably until december 31st, maybe it will be 11:00pm right before the stroke of midnight in the new year before these guys reach a deal, but i'm predicting they will maybe a deal i. talked to my congressional sources last night, they said the presiden the president in his overtures sounded much more conciliatory like he wanted to reach a deal. they are not
as defense secretary. you heard from the president on friday as he nominated senator john kerry as secretary of state and the new speculation about chuckle over at the pentagon. here are the comments of congressman dingell, the incoming democratic member of the house foreign affairs committee. but there is a huge opposition to the potential nomination of chuckled to become the next secretary of defense, even the president obama has not made his decision. the former senator has come under fire for statements he has made, including one where he referred to the pro-israel lobby as the "jewish lobby." what is your reaction to that remark? >> i think that remark is a troublesome and problematic. it shows that the very best, a lack of sensitivity, and at the very worst, prejudice. i am concerned about the nomination. chuck if has been in the senate for a number of years. there is not only a lot of controversy with that remark, but with some of his boats -- votes. i have been hearing it from what my constituents, mainly in opposition to his nomination. >> you mentioned his boats. there are two sets
unemployment tax benefits for 2 million folks still unemployed. delay sequestration cuts for defense until later in the year. >> dave: john boehner on friday says he does not want to limit sequestration unless you also have equal spending cuts. there is no chance of finding an extra 500 billion in spending cuts. not as far as democrats stand. here is harry reid on where the senate democrats stand at the 11th hour. >> if we come up with something, it's not that easy, we are dealing with big numbers some of the stuff we do is very complicated. i think it was a very positive meeting. there was not a lot of hilarity in the meeting. everyone knows how important it is. it took an extended period of time as you know waiting for us. everybody, whatever we come up with, is going to be imperfect. some people aren't going to like it. some people like it less, but that's where we are. and i feel confident that we have an obligation to do the best we can and that was made very clear in the white house. we're going to do the best we can for the caucuses that we have and country that's waiting for us to

as a potential secretary of defense. >> senator kerry will go through and, he is an appropriate secretary of state. i think, for a light footprint, often -- he'll execute president obama's foreign policy confidently, i'm sure and i think senator hagel will either not be nominated or confirmed, he's more extreme than john kerry and, the obama white house says he's a republican and, republicans will go for him, but on foreign policy issues, especially the last several years, he is way to the left of president obama in terms of iran sanctions. he's -- iran sanctions, the vote which got 92, 97 votes in the senate and he voted against, and, a letter signed by 99 senators, denouncing russia and he refused to sign it and he's anti-israel and talked about the jewish lobby in 2006. and for a republican -- talking about the jewish lobby having too much influence on capitol hill, will that person be appropriate to be secretary of defense? i think senator hagel will not be nominated by president obama, he likes him, they went on this trip together and he likes the idea of having a republican and all
